Also gotta brag about this table/cart I picked up the other day.
I went to the supply house for some material and asked how much for the cart out front and before I could get it all out a guy around the corner that I didn't see says.

"89.00"

I said to the guy in front of me "I'll take that too"

Pretty sure there's more material than that there lol.

upgrading the rear housing too?


I know you won't agree with everything I do with the axles from this point forward

But they're mine. And a rig this light some things just aren't gonna matter:flipoff2:

Well maybe I will.


Hadn't looked at the Overson knuckles yet

But I may go with bills knuckles again


They come with the best warranty I have ever heard of.

Little update this evening.

It's so hot here it makes it seem like Satan has the AC on in Hell.

I started off today with good intentions and realized I would rather be drunk and in the pool but I pressed on anyways.

I started off with the plan to merely set a couple pieces of tube to start getting the seating and the inner cab moving along.

Then this guy showed up and we started bull shitting and I wound up selling the 46's that the runner was built around

SCORE:flipoff2:

So I pressed on and centered up the drive train stuff aND started to attempt to notch some tube

Not pretty as usual so I came up with an excuse to not do that for now and went to Danger Rangers house to pick up my 60000 b table:shaking.....that always sucks:laughing:


Came back and began drinking heavily and decided that since it was still hotter than the Devils bedroom during an orgie that I would hop in the pool.

After that I began scoping out the front axle situation.

Let's be real here!!!!!


I'm not gonna give up wheeling for the next few years while I build a new rig

I'm not ripping my running rig apart I will scrimp and save for my dream build it will be fully worth it in the end.


Any way some tech on the front axle (didn't see this coming from me)

On the C&C rear axle the is only a usable amount of area. After doing a bunch of research I will reidiart from the red site

Don't use a flapper on the housing to make the inner C fit.


Heat the C until it slips on (approximately 450 degrees )

On the C&C rear axle the is a manufacturer butt inside the tube

You wanna cut the axle @9" to avoid the butt weld as well as the ground off weld on the outside of the housing.

I'll post up some pics in the morning.

No,

I wound up putting a bunch of time and money into my other rig this past year and that took away from the new one.

After Hammers I may rip everything I can outta the old rig and put it in the new one.


I dunno...Decisions Decisions!

I started purchasing some parts recently, just little things for now but hopefully it's about to take off.
